Do you see yourself as a failure? Is it your own mirror that you are looking at, or the reflection that others have cast upon you? If the mirror belongs to you then you need a new mirror. If the reflection is caused by others then you need some new friends. Family and friends can have an uplifting or devastating affect on your personal image of yourself. If all you feel or receive is negative feedback, then look for other company. No one on Earth is truly as bad as others can make them out to be. You can change your own image, but you need to stop feeding on the negative input.
